Course summary

Our accelerated MSc in mental health nursing will give you the opportunity to qualify as a registered nurse in two years. The course is aimed at people who already hold an undergraduate degree in a health or science related subject, and also have some prior experience in a care setting.

This innovative new blended learning course is supported by Health Education England to enhance the digitisation of the NHS. The majority of the theory element of the course will be delivered online using a variety of virtual and blended learning strategies. Practice placement experiences will take place in the clinical environment with our local NHS partners, supported by practice-orientated simulation activities.

Although this course is full time, the flexible course delivery enables you to balance your studies with other personal commitments. The course will also help you develop the digital skills needed to meet the demands of a changing society.

What's covered in the course?

The course is aligned to the 7 platforms of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for pre-registration nursing education, which cover the following areas:

Being and accountable professional
Promoting health and preventing ill-health
Assessing needs and planning care
Providing and evaluating care
Leading and managing nursing care and working in teams
Improving safety and quality of care
Co-ordinating care

Practice Placements

Practice placements will be field specific, during which you will experience exposure across the four fields of nursing. Practice placement experiences may be within community, hospital or home environment settings and at a location anywhere within the West Midlands region. While on placement, you will be supported, supervised and assessed by suitably prepared staff to develop your knowledge and skills.

The course will use a flexible placement model. Placements will typically be planned in extended periods of 10 weeks or more. You will need to achieve 200 hours of placement time in each period, and can negotiate whether this time is accrued in a full time block or part time across the whole period.
